The Department of Neurosciences, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. We seek applicants who utilize innovative methodological approaches to investigate basic mechanisms of neural development, regeneration, or neural circuit function and how perturbation of these mechanisms contributes to neurological, neurodegenerative, and/or psychiatric diseases. The new investigator will have the opportunity to interact and collaborate with a diverse group of individuals in basic science and clinical departments within the School of Medicine, University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, Cleveland Clinic, Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center, and MetroHealth Medical Center. Case Western Reserve University has an outstanding infrastructure for biomedical research including recently renovated animal facilities and core facilities supporting state-of-the-art methodologies in cellular and whole animal imaging, behavioral analyses, and proteomics and genomics. Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine has committed significant resources for major expansion of neuroscience research.
Applicants for a position as Assistant Professor should have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree, 3 to 5 years postdoctoral experience, and a strong record of scholarly activity. Candidates for appointment as Associate Professor should have these credentials and be nationally recognized scholars with a strong, externally funded research program.
Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research interests, names of three references and be submitted electronically at apply.interfolio.com/49561. The Interfolio application site will open on April 20th and close on June 20th. For technical questions about your application, please contact Interfolio directly at 877-997-8807 or email@example.com.

About Case Western Reserve University
The mission of the Neurosciences Department at Case Western Reserve University is to carry out world class research that advances our knowledge of how the nervous system develops and functions and how it is altered by disease, injury, genetic, and environmental factors. Neuroscience is inherently multidisciplinary and integrative and solving significant outstanding problems in this field requires substantive interactions between those working at different levels of neural organization: molecular, cellular, systems/circuit, and behavioral/cognitive. To accomplish its mission the department has assembled a group of primary faculty members who in aggregate have this diverse skill set.
Our goals are: 1) To understand how circuits in the brain, spinal cord, and autonomic nervous system are assembled during normal development, 2) To understand how these circuits function to enable normal sensation, movement, homeostasis, learning and memory, and higher cognitive functions, and 3) To use this understanding of basic mechanisms to provide new strategies and tools to treat a variety of disorders of the nervous system. Our mission is also to train a new generation of neuroscientists, both... basic and clinical, and to provide a strong foundation in understanding normal function of the nervous system and how this is altered by disease or injury to medical students. By serving as a focus for neuroscience research and training throughout the institution, the department has facilitated important advances in our understanding of mechanisms underlying normal neuronal function and in developing potential therapies to treat the diseased or injured nervous system.
